I have been a Bose fan for a while now and have their mini bluetooth speaker which is really good. But I wanted something louder and something that would fill the room more with a bit of design to it. I went to my local Solutions store and tested out all of the speakers and really liked the sound from the zeppelin. I didn't expect the sound that came out of it. Having it at home I keep hearing bits of songs I haven't heard before. I Turned it up loud the other day with a quarter of the volume to go on my iPhone and it was SO loud and wasn't distorting. The airplay works really well with my macbook and iPhone and if I just want to listen to a song quickly while I'm getting ready in the morning its great to have the dock.

    I will be back for more B&W products in the future.

    I highly recommend this speaker. The speaker fills the room with music. There is no distortion to the music when the speaker is I highly recommend this speaker. The speaker fills the room with music. There is no distortion to the music when the speaker is turned up to the loudest it can go. The speaker doesn't vibrate. The quality of the sound is amazing. What you pay is what you get. Yes, the speaker is pricey but once I listened to it, I could not go back to a cheaper / lower quality speaker. You hear all insturments played clearly. It makes you enjoy the music you listen to. It is easy to setup and use. Love the remote control. My kids enjoy listening to their music from their ipods on this speaker rather than through their headphones. Fantastic product. Worth considering if you are looking for an ipod speaker.

    Fantastic sound quality from the Zeppelin. I am a student and before the Zeppelin I owned the Harman Kardon Soundsticks which, in Fantastic sound quality from the Zeppelin. I am a student and before the Zeppelin I owned the Harman Kardon Soundsticks which, in my opinion were great, in terms of volume and quality. The Zeppelin however is so much better. The sound is cleaner and great to listen to any type of music at different volumes. I've had it turned up full on my iPhone with no bother - no distortion and no blown-out speakers (haven't tested full volume from my Mac yet).
    Only downside I would comment on is that to use AirPlay, you need decent wifi connection. Im on the third floor and when using AirPlay, the connection is weak and there are silent periods during the song where the system is trying to reconnect. Being as large as it is makes portability a bit of an issue to.
    Set up is simple and takes 5 minutes maximum.
    I would highly recommend this over other systems - price is definitely reflected in the quality.

    I bought this Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin air speaker 3 years ago. It has really good sound when it is playing.
    The problem is it I bought this Bowers and Wilkins Zeppelin air speaker 3 years ago. It has really good sound when it is playing.
    The problem is it kept dropping out and losing a connection to the network. This is very annoying. I thought is was my network and upgraded to the latest apple time capsule network. It made no difference. Everything else on my network works fine except this speaker.
    I ended up not using the airplay. I would just directly connect my iPhone.
    Recently the speaker stopped working all together. It does not even turn on.
    I contacted Bowers and Wilkins and was told as it is 3 years old it is out of warranty and not covered.
    I expected speakers of this value to last longer then 3 years.
    I certainly would not recommend this speaker to anyone.
